Vector Linux is a small, fast, Intel based Linux operating system for PC style computers. The creators of Vector Linux had a single credo: keep it simple, keep it small and let the end user decide what their operating system is going to be. What has evolved from this concept is perhaps the best little Linux operating system available anywhere. For the casual computer user you have a lightening fast desktop with graphical programs to handle your daily activities from web surfing, sending and receiving email, chatting on ICQ or IRC to running an ftp server. The power user will be pleased because all the tools are there to compile their own programs, use the system as a server or perhaps the gateway for their home or office computer network. Administrators will be equally as pleased because the small size and memory requirements of the operating system can be deployed on older machines maybe long forgotten.

Vector Linux是一份小巧快捷的、基于Intel处理器的PC机Linux操作系统。Vector Linux的创建者们有一则简单的信条:简单、小巧,并让最终用户决定他们的操作系统成为什么样子。由此观念发展而来的恐怕是世界上小型Linux操作系统中的最优者。对那些普通的计算机用户而言,他们得到的是一份快捷的桌面,有很多图形化的程序可供处理日常中的各种事物,从上网冲浪、收发电子邮件到用 ICQ或者IRC聊天,以及架设一台ftp服务器。高级用户们将会感到满意,因为有全套的工具可以编译他们自己的应用程序,从而把系统设置成服务器,要么是家庭或办公室计算机网络的网关。系统管理员们将同样得到满足,因为这份操作系统所要求的磁盘和内存空间是那样的小,以至可以部署在那些恐怕早已被遗忘的旧式机器上。
